Shania Twain receives Canada's highest honor

Canadian-born country music star Shania Twain has received the Order of Canada, the country's highest honor.

Canada's ceremonial head of state, Governor General Michaelle Jean, pinned the medal on Twain's lapel during a ceremony Friday.

The award citation noted her rise from poverty in small-town Timmins, Ontario to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry. "Today, she enjoys enormous success, yet she remains true to her roots."

Twain was also commended for efforts to eliminate child hunger, including support of several food distribution agencies.

"I was surprised, and I was very humbled," Twain said. "I'm not sure it's somewhere I belonged. I'm not even sure I'm quite deserving."
